  1. I must be the only person on earth still playing this (playing in VR) but did anyone get the bug where you cannot re-enter your power armour after exiting it? I just get do not get the option to enter it and it would just become a permanent monument were I’ve parked it. I have to reload to a previous save. Pretty major bug if I’m never going to be able to exit my power armour without abandoning it.
  2. Or buy Metroid Dread and then use Yuzu or Ryujinx
  3. Happy OLED switch day guys. Nothing like receiving a new hardware as well as great game the same day.
  4. I bought it before it was delisted. There maybe other versions that I can emulate with if not with a 360 emulator
  5. Fable Anniversary is £5.39 in the humble store at the moment. Worth it?
  6. Cool thanks, I'll go the emulation route. All I wanted was to have a blast on Outrun C2C
  7. I've been out of the xbox scene a while but used to have a tone of digital games and xbox live arcade games on my 360. Is there a way to play these games without an xbox? Can I access these through the cloud or even download them to a PC to play locally?
  8. Great stuff, I'm planning on eventually playing this after my Metroid run through the series from beginnings to end. Metroid 1 done (bloody rock hard and unforgivable in some places). What's the best order and shall I skip the more 'weaker' ones in the series?
  9. I just hope it doesn't have one of those dream/psychedelic sequences
  10. Epic Games Achievements Are Launching Next Week https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/news/epic-games-achievements-are-launching-next-week

    Oculus Quest

    Definitely, its quite a relaxing game
  12. Loved the original on the SNES
  13. Not sure if its been mentioned before but Zool Remastered released fairly recently on Steam by Sumo Digital Academy (student developers). I remember Zool growing up but never played it but will be adding to my wishlist
  14. I just dumped of of those regions BIOS’s into RA then it should just work.
  15. i think it does that automatically, correct me if I’m wrong. I only know this as I happened to try to get Castlvania: SOTN up and working over the weekend once I placed the BIOS files in the system folder of RA.
  16. Completed Metroid 1. Got the retro achievements to prove. Was a bit of a slog at times but glad I got through it. The mother brain boss was infuriating
  17. Hopefully these means we are one step closer to getting VR games that never came over to PC VR - Astrobot, RE7 and Wipeout
  18. I managed to get past Kraid and have also defeated Ridley so I think I'm nearing the end. Super Metroid next then probably Zero Mission. Save states helped as well as using a map. I love seeing the origins of these games series and am willing to put up with punishing gameplay and zero QoL systems to see it through.

    Oculus Quest

    I absolutely love the original Space Pirate Trainer, I was pleasantly surprised to learn of Space Pirate Trainer DX with an arena mode. Hmm maybe my back garden would be big enough if not I have a mate with a huge garden

    Oculus Quest

    Id love to get one of these. I'll keep an eye on this as I can see this being the way to VR if you don't have a massive space to move around in VR. Price wise I was expecting it to be more than it was. Also a fun way to exercise
  21. im sure there’ll be lots to talk about one this is released into the wild. Between the flexibility of this thing and the community that is going to push this thing to its limits I cannot wait to see what cool things are done. I can see perhaps Deck specific games being released with a “best played on the deck” sticker or “optimised for Steamdeck”
  22. I've hit a brick wall in terms of progression. Cant get past Kraid on Metroid 1. I ve worked out the gap between his attack pattern and can get some hits in but when I jump to the back to the platform which is the entrance I sometimes accidently go back to the previous screen and am wondering whether Kraids health resets everytime this happens. Dark Souls has nothing on this.
  23. oh yes absolutely. I wanted to go in all hardcore but modern games have spoiled me with their fancy in-game maps and I struggled with directions going to the same dead area multiple times and my lack of direction compounded this. I ended up finding a lovely site that has brilliant maps with graphics seemingly lifted out of the game somehow. I used the one without items shown so as not to hand hold me too much and spoil the experience. Great maps here: https://nesmaps.com/maps/Metroid/MetroidCompleteMapBG.html
